    Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a common and often debilitating mental health condition characterized by unwanted intrusive thoughts (obsessions) and repeated distress-reducing behaviors (compulsions). Frequently misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and mistreated, this series of lectures will demystify OCD and related disorders and the most effective protocols for helping those who suffer from them. Attendees new to or heavily experienced in treating OCD and related disorders will gain knowledge from multiple perspectives.

This series includes experts presenting on uncertainty acceptance in OCD treatment, sleep and OCD, process-based treatment of severe OCD and related disorders in for teens, similarities and differences in interventions for OCD and related disorders, current best practices for children and adolescents, and multimodal treatment of pediatric OCD at higher levels of care.
